Get outdoors, support REAP, win prizes

By Joe Jayjack on October 4, 2017 in Blog

REAP Assembly meetings are starting this week and will be held around the state through the end of the month. This is a great opportunity to support and learn more about the Resource Enhancement and Protection program, which works to enhance and protect Iowa’s natural and cultural resources.

The REAP Alliance, a coalition that includes INHF, is holding a drawing for people that get involved in the process. You can win a $100 gift card to Sportsman’s Warehouse and some outdoor gear by simply posting a picture of yourself at one of your favorite places to get outdoors or by attending a REAP Assembly meeting.

Here’s how it works:

  • REAP signGet entered to win by posting a photo of yourself on Facebook or Twitter with an official “Funded by REAP” sign at a park, trail, wildlife area or project of cultural significance in your community. Use the #REAPworks hashtag and tag the REAP Alliance so we can track your posts and log your entries. Use a geotag or state the location of the photo in your caption. One entry per location. Learn about the REAP projects in your community here
  • Get entered by attending your local REAP Assembly and posting a photo with the #REAPworks hashtag and tagging the REAP Alliance. See the schedule here
  • Earn another entry by being a REAP delegate and attending the REAP Congress in January. Once again, post a photo with the #REAPworks hashtag from the REAP Congress and we’ll log your entry.

You will receive one entry in the drawing for each photo you post (one photo per park, Assembly, Congress, etc). We will draw the winner of the $100 Sportsman’s Warehouse gift card and outdoor gear following REAP Congress on Jan. 6, 2018.

This contest is hosted by the REAP Alliance, which is a coalition of recreation, conservation, historical preservation and sporting organizations dedicated to protecting REAP program. REAP Alliance officers are not eligible to win.

Thank you to Sportsmans Warehouse for their generous support of this project and the REAP program. The gift card can be used online or at the Sportsman's Warehouse Ankeny location.
